We believe in giving suppliers a fair price – whether they’re part of our Sourced Locally scheme or a cocoa farmer from Ghana

What is Fairtrade

Fairtrade is about giving farmers and workers across the world better prices, decent working conditions and fair terms of trade.

It’s not just about tracing products back to their source – it’s about improving the lives and communities of the people who produce them and ensuring that they have the resources they need to continue.

Our Partnership with Fairtrade

We were amongst the first retailers to support Fairtrade when it was first introduced back in 1994. This relationship has only grown stronger throughout the last 25 years and the need for Fairtrade has only grown more important.

Now we not only stock a wide range of Fairtrade items, from chocolate to flowers to rubber gloves, but all of the cocoa in the Co-op own brand items we sell is Fairtrade.

How you can help

It’s really easy to support Fairtrade farmers around the world just look out for the Fairtrade symbol on regular items on your shopping list and make the swap!

  • Make the flowers you buy your loved one Fairtrade
  • Pick up a bottle of Fairtrade wine for your next girls night in
  • Choose Fairtrade chocolate for your next little treat
